GIRVAN has a poppy with a difference this year as members of Girvan Youth Trust’s And Beyond team have spray painted three poppies on the grass verge at Hamilton Park.

The idea came to the group on a recent trip to Edinburgh where the young people passed the Pyramid Business Park at Bathgate .

There they saw spray painted poppies to mark Remembrance Day.

Girvan Youth Trust’s ‘And Beyond’ Team thought this was a strong and appropriate way to show respect for those who have died at war.

The ‘And Beyonders’ contacted Poppy Scotland in Edinburgh for the poppy template and Hampden Ground Staff for advice on paint. The ‘And Beyond’ young people worked hard on this project and they are all very pleased with the results!

The ‘And Beyond’ Project is part-financed by the Scottish Government, European Community and Ayrshire LEADER 2007-2013 Programme and South Ayrshire Community Planning Partnership.
